PITTSBURGH (AP) — The businesses around PNC Park in Pittsburgh are struggling to get by with no fans allowed into the stadium due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mike Sukitch, the owner of the North Shore Tavern just across the street from the left-field entrance, has called the pandemic a long-term blessing in disguise. He overhauled the recently purchased restaurant during the shutdown and believes it will be worth it if fans can return in 2021. The Pirates are attempting to help a handful of small businesses around the stadium. The club launched the “Family Forever” program in July. It features commercials of the businesses as well as in-game promotions.
